No cause for alarm

On Wednesday, March 1, a malfunctioning fire alarm system in the new Student Centre caused some concern, but according to Aidan Kiernan, associate director of Facilities Management, everything is working fine now.

A contractor working on the sprinkler system inadvertently set off the fire alarm. Occupants of the building noticed that the horn which provide audio notice of a fire did not go off. Facilities Management employees investigated, and quickly discovered some loose wires.

During another false alarm caused by a surge in the city water system later that same day, all components of the fire alarm system worked as they should, noted Mr. Keirnan.

Student Recruitment relocating

On Friday, March 10, the Office of Student Recruitment and Promotion will move from the Thomson Centre to the third floor of the Arts and Administration Building in the space formerly occupied by Student Affairs and Services, A-3039.

Staff of the office hope to be up and running by Monday, March 13.
